I absolutely love Fairy Lights – especially LED powered ones to save on the every rising hydro bills!
The lights themselves are quite tiny for that sparkle hidden fairy light effect – and have a nice golden glow once turned on. I have had them on overnight, and they were cool to touch (this includes the power cord) – making me feel much safer using them!
They are attached to very pliable thin twisted copper wire, allowing for ultimate flexibility and creativity while creating a dreamy low lit scenario. Do take your time while unravelling the copper wire though, as it twists and knots upon itself quite easily if the decorating process is rushed!
The string of lights themselves are just over 30 feet, and can be laid out in a straight line, bent around bushes in the yard, set a romantic scenario by being clipped to the bathroom or bedroom ceiling, create a cool front entrance for Hallowe’en, decorate bannisters during the Christmas season, or whatever your heart desires.
The lights themselves are waterproof, however, the power plug is not, so if you are using it outdoors, make sure it is plugged into an area where water will not have contact with the plug.
I am boring and prefer the plain solid mode, however, there are a plethora of options to create whatever atmosphere you require. It has strobe effects, which can be quick or slow; light settings for low to high light power; and even a cool fade mode, which again, can be slow or quick. All this is controlled with a small remote control! It also allows you to reset the options you have chosen for the lighting, and turn the lights on and off as required, meaning you do not have to plug the lights in and unplug them after each use (I have had fairy lights that are daunting like this before).
Overall, although I prefer the Solar Panel lights due to their total waterproof attributes and not using the electricity, these fairy lights are still rather energy efficient and are fabulous for anyone who needs a little bit of sparkle in their life!
